Currently Being ModeratedOct 18, 2008 8:21 PM (in response to Sharon Chard-Yaron)Is this the procedure you are using:
Duplicate a CD or DVD
1. Insert the DVD/CD;
2. Open Disk Utility, and select the DVD/CD from the left side list (select the DVD/CD icon on top);
3. from the DU File menu select New | Disk Image from Disk 1;
4. Choose to format the disk image as DVD/CD Master, name the disk image and click Save;
5. When the .cdr file is finished select it with mouse and press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info and check the box to lock the file;
6. Choose the .cdr file from the left side list, click Burn, and insert a new, blank DVD or CD.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4), Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz; 30 GB iPod Video (Black); iPod Nano 2 GB
Currently Being ModeratedOct 18, 2008 9:46 PM (in response to Kappy)Yes. I see that on the old powerbook G4 and the new imac, the process is a little different, but playing around with this I see that if I burn the cdr image to the dvd it's fine,like as a backup for the disk image, but I assume it's not meant to play in an external dvd player. Is that right? When I burn the contents of the cdr image to a dvd and just get the video__ts folder, then it plays on the computers, and it does play on a newer, cheap phillips dvd player but not on the older jvc dvd player. The original dvd I wanted to copy was from outside the US, so I'm wondering if it's a region problem with the JVC.
Several years ago I did some work with imovie and idvd and burned dvd's and they worked fine in the JVC. The original dvd I was trying to copy today also works fine in the JVC. Just can't figure out what' the problem.powerbook 12", mirrored doors desktop, imac24/3.gh
Currently Being ModeratedOct 18, 2008 9:53 PM (in response to Sharon Chard-Yaron)Well, without seeing the disc itself I can only assume that whatever is on it may not be compatible with an older player. And, it could be a region problem, but I don't know. Aside from the copy mechanics I'm not too much help.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4), Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz; 30 GB iPod Video (Black); iPod Nano 2 GB
Currently Being ModeratedOct 19, 2008 5:06 AM (in response to Kappy)Thanks for taking the time to respond. And for clarifying the copy mechanics too. It just wasn't sinking in that burning a disk image (one cdr) on a dvd has no chance to work -- it has to be the separate folders (video__TS) (my old ones also have audio__TS) that are burned.
My JVC dvd player plays other home made dvd's....maybe this particular problem IS a region issue related to the original dvd I copied...
Thanks again.--powerbook 12", mirrored doors desktop, imac24/3.gh
